If you write for a living, or to make extra money, have you considered adding ghostwriter/coauthor to your freelancing repertoire? Eighty percent of "big name" books (think Hillary Rodham Clinton, Donald Trump, David Beckham, Clay Aiken) are ghostwritten, and publishers, agents, and corporations hire ghostwriter every day. Professionals like physicians, financial experts, and business owners pay ghostwriters to author books to heighten their visibility, as do everyday people who just dream of getting their books into print.
Best of all, ghostwriters can make good money, even today. Book proposals pay between $5,000 and $10,000 and typical book projects start at about $15,000, with many paying in the mid five-figures. A ghostwriter with eight years' experience averages $60,000 a year, well above the average fulltime freelancer's income. If you're a freelancer who wants expand into a lucrative niche, or if you're a book author who wants to make more money, considering saying goodbye to your byline-and hello to big bucks.
How do you get started in this lucrative field? What sets successful ghostwriters apart from the "wanna-bes"?
